REDD+ SE Standards: Briefing on Complimantarities with other REDD+ Social and Environmental Safeguard Mechanisms

2010 | Proforest in collaboration with CCBA and CARE

It is widely accepted that there are important social and environmental safeguards

which need to be in place within any REDD+ programme. All the emerging REDD+

mechanisms and initiatives including UNFCCC, FCPF and UN-REDD are developing

these safeguards. This briefing has been prepared to summarise the complementarities and synergies between the REDD+ Social and Environmental Standards (REDD+ SES) and the

environmental and social safeguards mechanisms of other key REDD+ initiatives. It

begins with a general overview and then looks more specifically at complementarities

with each of the three emerging safeguards mechanisms.
